Thanksgiving is slowly coming closer whether we realize it or not. Turkey, stuffing, and cranberries are all staple foods at this time of year. Personally, I look forward to the desserts, namely the pie. Pumpkin, apple, pecan, these are just a few of the choices that I am presented with each year. Typically, I go for a sliver of each and burry them in whip cream. Other years I choose one flavor and serve myself seconds before the end of the meal. Regardless of what season or Holiday it is, I always have a soft spot for pie. My love for pie doesn’t end with food however. I’ve found some creative ways to carry my obsession with this dish over to my love of crocheting. Introducing my new line of crocheted pies:
This project was what really got me into making pie potholders. It instantly became a favorite in my Etsy shop and I decided to make different varieties based off of this basic design. I came up with the pattern myself after flipping through a Bon Appetite magazine and seeing a delightful picture of a slice of cherry pie. Because it looked so good I decided to crochet my own version of it.
Almost as important as the turkey is the pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving isn’t quiet Thanksgiving without the pumpkin pie and we all know it. It’s creamy and sweet, and totally worth making a potholder after this dish.
This one was probably one of the most time consuming of the 3 types I made. Each apple slice had to be individually stitched to the base and the ends woven in. The end product though, was totally worth it.
I loved the pumpkin pie potholder that I made so much that I decided to make a smaller version and call them coasters. they’re perfect for a hot cup of apple cider or even your morning coffee.
The reason I love this collection so much is because its tailored after one of my favorite desserts. Plus, I can totally picture myself using these potholders this Thanksgiving as dessert is being served.
